The simple fact is these boats have to run on the ragged edge to get the speeds. if you look at the Qatar run that boat is trimmed up also. At some point aero-dynamics take over and boat becomes a wing with no way to control it.

We been running Cats for a while,decent speeds, when they get high trim down asap, chopping the throttles is worse.... tail drops
Heres the one time we got lucky, Pops a little generous on the up trim, luckily realized and sucked it back in. Little boat, Motion 36
